[vimeo id="97630329"] One of the most common struggles people have is worrying. Whether it’s money, your calling, or relationships worrying seems to be an underlying theme that often comes with each of them. Relevant Magazine recently published an article where they tackle this issue and made the point that worrying boils down to a single issue – fear.

The article offered a few tools that we can use to respond to worrying and getting out of fear.

First, know who God is. Too often we forget the fact that we serve an awesome God. He is good and wants the very best for us. We forget the fact that He created all things and that He is in charge. The Bible reminds us that He knows the plans that He has for us and will always look out for our wellbeing. He has divinely designed you to fulfill your life mission and to live an empowered life. If you allow this simple truth to be cultivated into your thought-life, I guarantee you will see a significant change from fear to confidence.

Second, surrender to God. As humans we crave to be in control of things and we worry when we feel like we don’t have that power. The truth is that we’re never in control. In fact the Bible even says that many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it’s God’s purpose that prevails. So no matter what you have planned for your life, you must learn to rely on God because it is His will that ultimately comes to pass.

Third, know who you are. Understanding how and why you were divinely designed is one of the keys to living worry-free. You were made for a purpose according to God’s divine design. Your identity needs to come from God and who He made you to be.  There is no one like you in this world and all that you are was intentionally created to solve a problem. Once you draw your courage from God’s handiwork in your life – you will begin to live in victory over worry.
